Blizzard Inspired Snowflake Cards!!!



On this one I did random embossing :0)…then stickled the embossing to make my own glittered patterned paper…looks really pretty IRL





Oh the weather outside is FRIGHTFUL, but my scrapspace is SO delightful…I gonna’ go downstairs and stamp…Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Hee hee hee..!  Do you have a favorite??? Mine is the first one I think. I love white on white.


Some of the goodies I used. Plus some  card stock , a Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, ribbon, and CTMH Glitter brad.

Who says a blizzard is a bad thing!

It finally stopped snowing here..after about 36 hours and we have 40 mph-60 mph gusts. This is really as bad as I have seen it here in Iowa. Well over a foot of snow. It’s the wind that is the killer though.

I think tomorrow will be spent digging out from under all this…so take care and stay safe and warm!!!

I was just on my way to your blog for a little inspiration when I saw you new post.And now, I'm overwhelmed. Your cards are breathtakingly beautiful. Wow! I think I need a blizzard. LOL. While, like you, I lean toward the first one, the second one really caught my eye, too. They all did - gorgeous.

It certainly looks like you have some digging out to do. No envy there! Dress warm and take care!

Okay where have I been?!? You have been busy making some cards woman! They are gorgeous!!

And I love your snow pics--since it's not MY backyard covered in snow. And your tree is so beautiful!

Dawn said...

Really beautiful card creations and photos of your blizzard.

Sheila Bennett said...

Oh my goodness - that is a lot of snow! You took some really great pictures. I really like the ice crystal ones.

And your all-white card is very nice. Just snowy. :)

Gorgeous my friend! Each and everyone of them!!! I may be doing some CASEing. Love the pics too.

Stay cozy and warm. Maybe make some hot chocolate with a ton of marshmallows. Yummmm!

Jeanne said...

Wow! These are all gorgeous, but I will say my jaw dropped when I looked at the first one. It is STUNNING!

Trying to figure out how you did your random embossing...then saw your stencil and think you used that, right? Very cool.

No, I do not want any of your snow, thanks for asking though! Looks like you are gonna be busy digging out. Take care while you are doing it.

I think the blizzard agreed with mojo is in overdrive! *Ü*

Laurel said...

Gorgeous cards and pictures, although I am glad you have the snow not us!

Alanna said...

Your cards are so wonderful Sarah. I agree, the first one is my favorite. I'm definitely going to have to lift this one. I'm glad your blizzard could inspire all these beautiful cards. Stay warm.

I've left you an award on my blog.

Wow, blizzards certainly are good for the snowcard making mojo! Love them all, though the Kraft card is my favorite--they just say 'Sarah' to me.
Wind can be good....only if it manages to drift the snow out of the driveway and not into it. Good luck with the digging out!

Sparkle said...

Very pretty! I just love the glitter, so I love all the sparkly-ness, lol. Stay warm!

Carla said...

Wow, wow, wow!! Love them all!
But I think the first one is my favourite - truly stunning.
Did you know it qualifies for the color challenge this week at Design Dollies . . . all white! I didn't know where to start with an all white challenge - but you've inspired me to give it a try!

Kim said...

Wowie, I think that all of them are my favorites! your cards are always so perfect and classy! You make it way tooo hard to chose a fave. My honeybee said to keep that foot or so of snow out your way. Your cards are so very inspirational!

I love all your snowflake cards Sarah especially the last one with the snowflake wreath. I loved this last crazy storm but yes that wind was pretty crazy leaving those amazing drifts! Finally you pictures of the frost are freakin awesome!!!!Beth

chercroppin said...

Wow Sarah, the pics of that snow...amazing! I haven't seen that since I was young and lived in Michigan!

Oh, and my fave is the first one's totally gorgeous! They're all pretty nice....I have just started liking 'snowflakes'...LOL

mE said...

HOly moly!!! Look at that SNOW! WOWZA! I'm chuckling at the snow against your slider door. WOW! My parents (in Clive) just dug themselves out, too.

My favorite is the first one. The white on white is absolutely STUNNING. It's elegant and loverly! I am going to have to case it! :)

Inky Smiles!

Beautiful cards as always!!
We only got about 8" of snow.

Have a great weekend!!

Barb said...

Your cards are gorgeous! I LOVE the first one, white on white is so fresh! And the pics of the snowflakes on your window are just lovely! TFS

Christina said...

First off, I LOVE your snow pictures...I wish it would snow here. Maybe not THAT bad but at least cover the ground a few inches for awhile! I live by the ocean so it RARELY ever snows here!

Secondly, I love all your cards! I need to get some tools to pop my pictures out like you do (is that dry embossing or something?)...makes great cards! YOU ROCK GIRLY!
